Having travelled the world, there are a fair few steak restaurants. The Exchange grill at the Fairmont in Dubai is outstanding. Service is prompt and attentive yet not disruptive. The food is world class and the Japanese Kobe steak tasting menu is pure class. The tables are large for a couple but once the food starts to arrive you realise... More

What a sensory experience. An absolute delightful meal, 5 courses of dishes that compliment Kobe Beef. The Kobe Steak literally melts in the mouth. If you able I would recommend the Kobe Beef set menu at 675 AED In addition the staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. An outstanding evening and venue.

After many years of not going there I was so wonderfully surprised to have such a great night. Everything from the delicious warm crisps and bread that you start with to the succulent steak and the creamy mash potato, the entire experience was excellent. If you love meat this is the steakhouse for you. The staff were so polite, funny,... More

There were just four tables booked on the night we went - but this did not detract one bit from the evening. Excellent attentive staff, who could explain the menu well, (the menu changes quite regularly). Great PGA Rib Eye, and a drinks trolly that had some of the best gins known to man! Well worth it!

Visited this restaurant with a client and was met by charming, friendly and knowledgeable staff from reception to exit. We both had the Filet Mignon with sides and it was cooked to perfection. Temperature and crust was exactly as it should be and the sides were equally good. Assistance in wine selection (no tempernillo) was helpful and over all very... More

Did not go for the Wagyu, seemed inappropriate to eat an animal which did more yoga than I do. Seriously had the PGA Ribeye, and it was great.
